    I'll be brief. PM me for more details if you'd like, and I promise I'll get back to you as soon as possible. There is much to do in the next couple of weeks ... because ...

    I'm leaving the state I've called home since the day I was born. My travels have taken me to almost every state in the country, but I'd never seen the one I'm heading to until last weekend. I accepted a position as sports editor of a small paper in the Pacific Northwest. My last day on the job here is Aug. 6, and within two weeks after that I'll be on the clock at my new place.

    Those who know me understand this is a major life change for me. I'm excited. I'm sad to leave home, but most of my family is on the West Coast, with several in the Pacific Northwest, so this has more benefits than just a new job with unexplored horizons for me. I hope I get to meet some new SportsJournalists.com friends out there, and I know I'll soon see a few I've already connected with (including one who drove me around my soon-to-be new home state last weekend).

    Anyway, at the risk of calling attention to myself, I wanted to let my friends on the board know if they didn't hear through other means.

    OK, back to packing. :p

    Good luck.

    Hopefully you will find Pac 10 sports to be very fun to watch and cover.

    Congratulations, JohnnyD! It's great to see you land on your feet -- and take a large leap forward at the same time. Guess I'll have to reschedule those plans to visit, eh?

    Congrats, Johnny! You're one of the best people I've "met" through this site (I still put it in quotes even if we unknowingly sat 4 seats apart at the UK-LSU football game) and I wish you all joy in the future.

    You deserve it as much, if not more, than anyone I know.

    Johnny, Congrats. You're a good guy. Big change for you, but no doubt you'll do well. Go forth, and embrace your inner tree hugger.

    This should generate lots and lots of culture-clash postings. "What, no crawfish at the seafood market?!?"

    Always good to expand your horizons. Good luck!

    Best of luck, JD, and be sure to ask for boudin with your morning coffee to throw 'em a curveball.
